Simply going to use the Cthulhu Mythos universe. Not H.P.L.'s work entirely.

So, it will be the 20s? Or some other, also interesting period?
There's a lot of Chtulhu goodnes for the II world war period and some possibily of
running it at the beggining of the cold war.
Would you agree that having modern technology available is kind of against the spirit of mythos?
Then again, i heard good things about some modern Chtulhu games.
Anyway, i yet have to think about my char, not sure if i want a bon-vivant, maybe something entirely different.

No, modern technology doesn't take anything from the Cthulhu Mythos, actually. In fact it spans off to more possible horrors. Mainly the unspeakable, unviewable ones to come more into an actual account of interaction. As with quite a few of the horrors of the Cthulhu Mythos man has yet to actually see in any account...will be opened to new possibilities. Of course, the underlining storyline would be that Cthulhu and such still remained the way they were. Afterall if he was to awaken it's the end of the world. If Azathoth was to "awaken" as well, it's end of the universe as some would believe that the universe is just a dream it's having.

As for Cthulhu. There is goodness from ancient times to above and beyond. But, simple come. The future only brings new ways to instill a neverending innate sense of fear and the encroachment of insanity lingers ever closer.

As for others. H.P. Lovecraft is not the only one to add to the Cthulhu Mythos, he was simply the founder of the entire thing. Not to stray away from the purists. But, Lovecraft would in fact have written about the modern times and past the twenties and such. He simply died before that time. Afterall, he died "during" the twenties and of course the man enjoyed to write things based on his present time.

So, there you go... if he lived a lot longer, he would have added more ages.

Well, of course it will have those elements. Just what would be the suitable place to put the game though.

Some very Cthulhu friendly settings:
South America before or during the second world war, lots of mysteries and strangeness for the hapless tourist.

II world war, a neutral country thick with spies and intrigues, for example Sweden, Switzerland and such.

Cold war period - any little piece of 'third world' where interests of powers clash.

Alaska or northern Canada, a small town on the edge of cold sea. Strange people live here and they tell strange tales.

Modern northern Asia, just what exactly lurks in Syberia? It's not like there are regular police patrols there...
What goes on in that abandoned soviet settlement?

Shanghai, Hong-Kong, Makau, or similar. Those places are full of mysteries, strangeness and shady dealings at any given time. It's said that when God created the world, he got the blue-prints from a dealer he met in an opium den.

Europe, a big city, heart of the world. Some mysteries don't give a damn about public works and metro.
Sewers, museums, secrets of old noble families...

Egypt. Nuff said.

I'd agree with Heavy Exotic... Always safer to err on the side of caution and that leaves us open to go wherever the story takes us.

But violence will, it's unavoidable when insanity beyond human comprehension is involved.
While the name might not be fitting, perhaps 'bondage and the like' would be an appropriate
description, since while ugly things could happen, we won't reach onscreen rape.

There is a section called "Normal Games". If this wont have explicit sexual content, it can go there. ^.^
